In accordance with the government’s regulations regarding the current COVID-19 public health situation, we are closing our Melbourne and Sydney offices until further notice and conducting all business remotely. All collections and deliveries of artworks to/from our offices are postponed until the situation settles. Rest assured, we will still be operating online appraisals via the online form below and consigning works for our next auction, so please do not hesitate to get in touch.

From our team here at Menzies, we’d like to express our very best wishes to our community during this challenging time.

If you are considering selling an artwork, our expert consultants can provide a free initial estimate of its value. We provide appraisals online, at our offices, at your premises, or even via mail. We can reliably appraise Australian and international works of art, across all media. However, please note that Menzies is a secondary market for art, so we cannot value new work by artists currently working and/or exhibiting.


Menzies offers a prompt and wide range of specialist valuation services to private collectors, corporations, government organisations, executors and financial advisors. Valuations can be for insurance, market appraisal, probate, family division, the Cultural Gifts Program or leasing.

All valuations are undertaken on a strictly confidential basis and include accurate descriptions and the option of accompanying digital photographic records.

Quotations for valuation services are available on enquiry to our office. We charge a reduced fee for updating existing Menzies’ valuations so you can always keep your insurance valuations current. Fees for market appraisals will be rebated if you consign your property for sale with us.


Prior to each auction our specialists visit Perth, Adelaide, Canberra and Brisbane to provide free appraisals to clients. Times for these visits are advertised here on this website, and in the local press.
Clients on our mailing list are notified in advance of visits by brochure and/or email as preferred. To make an appointment, please contact us on 02 8344 5404 (Sydney) or 03 9832 8700 (Melbourne).
